By Lois Lumbra — It seems the news this week is our weather situation and all that it has brought since the beginning of our new year. We are on the roller-coaster pattern, up to 60 and down to 10 below all in one day. This last storm has created more havoc than the blizzard. The rain once here poured down for hours bringing the rivers up over there banks. There was ice jams over several towns throughout Vermont. I’m sure there are many stories, just depends who you talk too.

She had invited the club members to come for lunch, she had prepared a delicious homemade soup, bread and or crackers, a carrot cake for dessert and hot or cold drinks and snacks.

Eighty years ago during the depression I came across this statement made by someone, I found it very interesting.
USE IT UP, WEAR IT OUT, MAKE IT DO, OR GO WITHOUT.
So that is all for this week folks, may each day we are given on this earth, be filled with joy and love. L.T.A.
